Pageviews past week

Monday, December 7, 2015


            Ok, I know what you are thinking. It has been a while since I saw I review of the week film in this spot. Well guess what you were not dreaming. I took some time off, sorry. I am back wit a a vengence now and ready to finish my top ten ‘Dream of the Week’ movie reivews. There will be a classic next week with Alfred Hitchcok’s Spellbound.

            From the menu options on the DVD this movie looks creepy and scary. When in reality it is mostly slow and boring. The acting is only so so and the storyline lame and predictable. That being said however this movie was not all tht bad. The Dream sequnces were excellent.

            I am not saying I hated this movie. I just didn’t love it. I know you are expecting a low grade at the end of this review. Well keep reading you may be surprised. This movie was not with out merrit. Kate Capesaw looked cute as a button and Dennis Quaid played off her as well as the script allowed. (Which wasn’t much mind you.) Max von Shadow and Christopher Plummer were god supporting players.

            For the most part this 99 minutes film went by quick. A major advantage for a flick if you ask me. As horror movies go this film wasn’t half bad. It had a snake man, some scary dreams, and a frightened child. All pluses if yiu ask this amatuer critic. While I wouldn’t go out and recommend this movie to day I would not ban it from my net flick queue either.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
